Microsoft releases Visual Studio latest version

PanARMENIAN.Net - After a year of previews and one release candidate, Microsoft officially launched the latest version of its Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE) together with an update to its .NET framework, TechCrunch reports.

Visual Studio 2015 (VS 2015) is now available for download (and purchase), but Team Foundation Server 2015 — part of Microsoft’s online services for development teams — will remain in its release candidate phase until next month.

As part of today’s announcement, Microsoft also released a couple of new download numbers for various tools in the Visual Studio ecosystem. Visual Studio Community, for example, the much-improved free version of the software for non-enterprise users, has now been downloaded five million times since its launch seven months ago. More than 3.2 million developers have now registered for the Visual Studio Online services. Visual Studio Code, the stand-alone code editor for Windows, Mac and Linux has seen half a million downloads since its launch three months ago. More than half of those downloads came from Mac and Linux users.

As Microsoft’s corporate VP of its Developer Division S. “Soma” Somasegar told TechCrunch, the company’s aim with Visual Studio was to make good on its promise to deliver a tool that allows developers to target all the popular platforms. “When you think about Visual Studio, the core theme is that VS 2015 is a cross-platform tool set,” he said. “Developers have been asking for this and we are delivering it.”

To do this, the Visual Studio team integrated Apache Cordova, for example, so developers can write iOS and Android apps using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. They can also take their C++ language skills and build shared components for their iOS, Android and Windows apps. Thanks to its partnership with Xamarin, developers can also take their .NET apps and target iOS and Android. For Android developers, Visual Studio now even includes a built-in Android emulator.
